We’re continuing our series of stories of faith in action. As people of faith, we are entrusted with caring for all of God’s creation. It takes all of us using our gifts and these posts are stories of how people have answered the call to serve God in the world. Today’s story is from Sammy Mikulski, our director of theatre ministries. She writes:
“For the past 4 years I have had the honor of heading up the Thanksgiving Basket food drive. This is a ministry that is very dear to my heart. When I was a child I was one of those who received those baskets, and the joy that came along with it is unexplainable.
This year we were able to feed 25 families wonderful meals from olives to turkey with all the trimmings, through to the pumpkin pie desert, because of the generous folks here at Zion. The smiles we received this year were wonderful, and two of the families had us hold hands and say a prayer with them. They were all so gracious, we were invited in like we were one of the family. To me this is what Thanksgiving is all about.
A huge thank you to Zion for the amazing donations of food, money, and gift cards. And another huge thank you to our food deliverers Celeste, Julie, the entire Christmas family, Bonnie , Brinkley, Lindsay, Gavin, Amy and Manny. God is Great… God is Good…you know the rest!”
